AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Argues that 'Waltzing Matilda' was written at Dagworth Station in January, 1895, not April 1895 as many authorities have asserted. Magoffin outlines the painstaking research he undertook to establish his conclusion. He also presents an imagined version of Paterson's days at Dagworth and the possible origins of the term 'jumbuck'.
